Wedding Cake Tip #8: When choosing your wedding cake you need to consider the weather. If you are having a wedding outdoors in Jamaica you need to stay away from butter cream, meringue and whipped cream. Fondant is a safer option.

Wedding Cake Tip #9: Do not forget to use the correct table and table size for your display. Most persons forget these details.

Wedding Cake Tip #10: If you are storing you wedding cake for a first anniversary be careful of freezer burner. Suggestion from the Knot "Think about indulging on your two-week or one-month anniversary, and treat yourself to a fresh cake in the same flavor when you've survived the first year. If you must adhere to tradition, wrap the cake in plastic wrap, then bag it in an airtight baggie. Stay away from aluminum foil — it might not protect against freezer burn as well as plastic wrap because it's not an airtight material."
